Country Life goes to the Dordogne
IN association with Boxwood Tours, Country Life is delighted to announce an exclusive tour from September 19 to 23, enjoying the gastronomy and gardens of this richly fascinating region, hosted by Country Life contributors David Wheeler and Kirsty Fergusson. From our comfortable base at Le Vieux Logis, a member of Relais & Châteaux with a Michelin-starred restaurant, our tailor-made tour explores the Dordogne’s varied horticultural gems, frequently in the company of their owners. As well as Marqueyssac, we explore romantic Sardy and the medieval Château de Losse, with its sensitively restored gardens and château. Hautefort boasts immaculate formal gardens and Les Jardins du Manoir d’eyrignac reveal topiary at its best. The Chartreuse du Colombier includes a walled garden, a potager, a Baroque pavilion, avenues and borders full of old roses and traditional flowers.
The cost is £3,325 per person (single supplement: £300), which includes four nights’ accommodation at Le Vieux Logis, meals with local wines and return flights from London Gatwick. For more information, visit www.boxwoodtours.co.uk or telephone 01341 241712.
